These lactation balls feature almond butter, vegan protein, chia seeds, rolled oats and more. So many galactagogues in one recipe! These breastfeeding energy bites will sustain you through your pumping or nursing session, are freezer friendly, and incredibly easy to make.
We recommend whipping up a batch for your postpartum lactation routine, to have on hand when baby comes home. It's an absolute postpartum essential! Using our lactation protein powder, these balls make a great breastfeeding supplement to your day.
- 1 1/2 c rolled oats
- 1/2 c Milk Drunk protein powder (any flavor!)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1 T chia seeds
- 1/2 c almond butter (any nut/seed butter works)
- 3 T honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 c chocolate chips
- 2-4 T almond milk
Add oats, protein powder, cinnamon and chia seeds to a large bowl.
Stir in almond butter, honey and vanilla extract, combine well. Add chocolate chips. Mixture should be slightly sticky but still crumbly.
Slowly add in almond milk one tablespoon at a time and using hands, combine until it comes together in a sticky ball that holds together. If mixture is too dry, add in more liquid but not so much that it won’t hold shape.
Roll into balls using hands and place on a parchment-lined sheet. Pop in fridge to set, lactation balls will be ready to eat within minutes! Freeze in a sealed container or bag for up to three months.
